Often times, in an odd form of comfort, we recognize one's hurt and attempt to validate feels and/or relate with our experience with the dyad "I know." And, strangely, those two simple words do bring a sense of understanding, validation, relation, and . . . comfort.
So it shouldn't surprise us, then, that it eternal love, the God of all grace also says, "I know." But, in emphatic grace, he doesn't just say that as the God who is from eternity to eternity (though he is), or as the God who is all powerful (though he is), or as the One who is transcendent, immanent, and just (though he is). Instead, in love so high, so wide, so free, he says "I know" as our Good Shepherd. And, in that same love, he does know us and is with us every step of the way.
